Default Flabby Calves


I am near my target for getting rid of my fat and about size 8(UK) in skirts and trousers. I have excess flab still on my abdomen which I'm told will only go with a tummy tuck. Not going down that route though. At 56 I will stick there if I can't improve on it.

My big annoyance though, is flabby calves. They carry a combination of fat and muscle and are prone to water retention which it even worse.

I'm wondering how best to improve them.

Any ideas?

I've had a few starts and stops as I've flirted with weights but having CFIDS has held me back a bit. Back on track at the moment so I'd like to start addressing the calf thing.

I work out at home. I have a multi-gym and free weights but haven't really got a lower body routine yet although I've just started using Jari Loves DVD (squats and lunges etc.) after which I can feel most of my muscles but not my calves.
